damage. rear of that thing is gone. the extended cab and new jersey plate on the front end. hood is up if you that thing is burn up. what i'm told by a source on the the scene not with the police but somebody who was here all night working this scene is that a family of four was in there including a six year-old boy and passerby, pull this is family out. the boy has third degree burns i'm told, flown to crozer-chester after initially taken to the hospital here in delaware. but an awful seen here, it is amazing that it is not worse when you see that pickup truck. we will get you a closer look and somehow i was over and allow to take close-up pictures with my cell phone and tweeted several pictures where you see the extent of the damage there both vehicles. so how did this happen overnight. it appears from all of the debris to the right of the chris fox's shot here, this pickup truck was waiting at the light here, at pulaski highway and 896, and route 40,
4:47 am
this is a combination of the bunch of road where you see transportation department putting out cones but you see that debris in front of the gentlemen with the two cones here and this family from new jersey may have been coming back from a vacation or trip to the new jersey beach, delaware beach and going back to new jersey. they are waiting at a light and then this tractor trailer driver may have nodded off is what we were told and fallen asleep and then came back awake after the accident from the crash of the accident waking him up and he was okay, able to talk to police and tell him what he remembered after he woke up and managed to control the tractor trailer there. you can see how far both vehicles went if it happened the initial impact where you see the first of the debris field over there, chris. this is an awful scene. it is a hazing it is not reported fatal scene but when we have a little boy closer to the impact because he is in a child restraint seat in the back of the extended cab of the ford pickup truck that
4:48 am
caught fire from being hit by a heavy tractor trail where a oklahoma license plate and maryland plate on the front of the tractor, the engine part of that truck. an awful scene here. we will try to talk to delaware state troopers once they get a moment but they are very busy right now with this. they have got other side of the road shut down as bob kelly has been telling you all day but a very busy intersection with a very awful scene as you can see traffic coming up. we are on a island that they direct as you way from the impact to show you but look at these still picture on twitter that we will have on our web site as well and you'll see how bad this was. and whoever who it was that pulled that kid and family of four out of the pickup truck while on fire. good thing it was a busy highway. that way people were here to sianni save people before police were here, chris. good hustle getting to that scene.

meantime we will check with scott williams looking at weather on this friday morning, hi there scottie. >> good friday morning, good friday everyone. looking at ultimate doppler things much improved after another round of overnight pop up showers and thunderstorms, heavy activity in sections of gloucester and salem county and then diminished as it moved through atlantic county. we will move in closer around philadelphia area, last night was diner en blanc, mostly dry but toward the tail end of the event you can see pop up showers rolling through center city and then once again into parts of the south jersey but that system is out of here. we are looking at temperatures today, and in the upper 80's to near 90 but heat wave is officially over. it ended yesterday with high temperatures in the upper 80's. storms return for the weekend. seventy-four in philadelphia. wind every calm. humidity high at 87 percent. we are looking at 71 wilmington. seventy-two millville.
4:50 am
upper 60's in pottstown. wind are nice and calm across the area but during the take we are looking at more northerly wind that will help it be more of a dry heat today. lunchtime temperature 84 degrees. by 3:00 this afternoon 89. we will peak out right around 90 in the philadelphia area, hey, cardinals are in town this evening and we are looking at first pitch temperatures right around 85 degrees. should be the nice evening at the ballpark. ninety for today. ninety again tomorrow but tomorrow more humidity. 88 degrees on sunday with pop up showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening, and then behind that system it is looking really nice. eighty-three for the high monday. eighty-four on tuesday. look at this, this is what we have been waiting for, bob kelly, you put those comp days in yesterday. >> i put them in yesterday, i have not heard back from the boss yet on. that good luck, right. 4:50. good morning. the here's the scene of that accident that steve was just
4:51 am
on telling us about. pulaski highway is route 40, through delaware here, and college avenue is 896 and then right at that intersection it turns into route 301. so again that tractor trailer was coming south along i896 when it collided with that pickup truck at the traffic light here at route 40. so as you are copping south of delaware right now 896 you are push off and not going any further south. alternates in play probably route one would be your best bet as that investigation continues through the morning rush hour. another accident this one right here in our camera at northbound on the roosevelt boulevard right at fox street it looks like a one vehicle crash right in the wall there. so north bound side there is that one lane getting through. vine street expressway looks like we're halfway there. nope, we're opened in both directions, east and westbound after the overnight

david was proud to be an american soldier. and i know i'm prejudiced because he was my son, but i don't think he had a mean bone in his body. there is not a day that i don't think about david. when i saw donald trump attack another gold star mother, i felt such a sense of outrage.
